Mashina accompanied me throughout my high school years, from high school to the army, from the army to work and until I move to the US (I think that they broke up because I moved��)
When they did their reunion tour I was lucky enough to be part of the production in the US and we have been together since. We produced together seven tours and tens of shows, but we never presented to our audience a special and moving show like the one we are presenting Saturdaynight at City Winery in New York City.
Yuval and Shlomi, the founders and the leading force of Mashina, are coming to us with an intimate yet powerful show. With all the greatest hits and the stories behind the songs that you never heard. Accompanied by the super talented Joe Nave (percussion, keyboards, guitar and vocals) and the one and only Galia Hai on viola and vocals.
You will be moved, you will laugh and of course you will dance. So what are you waiting for? Tickets are running out and an opportunity like this won't be back soon. See you all Saturday

Israeli rock singer Yuval Banay and rock guitarist Shlomi Bracha started Israel's most famous, and longest-existing rock band Mashina in 1982. At the time they were two kids, just out of their mandatory military service, and they had no idea what was coming: Mashina's meteoric rise resulted in 10 rock albums, which became the bedrock of Israeli culture, with many reaching platinum and multi-platinum sales. To this day, Banay and Bracha are the face and voice of Israel rock.
Mashina's earlier songs were influenced by 1970s rock musicians such as Dylan, Pink Floyd and The Rolling Stone. Banay and Bracha's later work expressed the impact of punk and New Wave music. And as the duo reached its prime, their signature style has formed into a combination of alternative rock and art rock, with oriental elements woven in. In this musical style, the band poetically presented  a poignant message about Israel, as it began to undergo a stormy identity crisis. 
Banay and Bracha have also led independent critically-acclaimed solo careers. Separately and with Mashina, Banay and Bracha have performed countless times in Israel and abroad, in high-voltage park concerts in front of an audience of 50,000 fans, and in the most elegant music halls in Israel and around the world. But "Noah's Arc" is an opportunity to see them like never before. In this concert, Banay and Bracha offer a personal and intimate take on a selection of songs from their endless list of hits, allowing themselves to be accessible to their long-standing fans and to new listeners alike.
With them on stage are Omer "Joe" Naveh, one of Israel's most promising young musicians, and Galia Hai, Israel's most prominent  viola player. It is an evening of electro-acoustic rock, and a not-to-be-missed opportunity to hear some of the best known, most beloved and powerful rock music to have ever come out of Israel, in a rare intimate and moving atmosphere.
